If you have information about corporate fraud occurring in your workplace, our lawyers may be able to help you. Most American workers want to earn an honest paycheck, and feel good about what they do at work. When your employer commits corporate fraud, not only do they hurt consumers and investors, but they also hurt their employees.
Many of the recent corporate scandals have been uncovered by brave and honest employees blowing the whistle when they discovered wrongdoing at work. Some of this corporate fraud has not only been illegal, but it has lead to the injury or even deaths of countless consumers.
Depending upon the type of fraud that you have uncovered, you may have varying rights as a whistleblower under the law. Some types of whistleblowers may be entitled to a significant financial reward for reporting the wrongdoing that they know about.  Our law firm has represented Medicare fraud, securities fraud, defense contractor fraud, and FCPA fraud whistleblowers (just to name a few) that have been eligible to receive a sizable financial reward for doing the right thing. It is very important for a whistleblower to speak with a knowledgable lawyer about their case. Unfortunately, in certain cases, under the law, the whistleblower loses many rights and protections that they may be entitled to if they report directly to a government agency instead of going to a lawyer first.

Employees With Inside Information Make Useful SEC Whistleblowers

The Dodd Frank Whistleblower Law was put in place to help current or former employees of corporations which have engaged in securities laws violations. In many cases, whistleblowers work for the corporation that was responsible for committing securities fraud. After all, this is just basic logic: employees have access to information that is internal to the company and is rarely available to others. They have the best view of what goes on “behind closed doors.”

One thing that whistleblowers should know is that the person’s job title or positions within the company doesn’t matter. The Dodd Frank Whistleblower Law was put in place to allow employees who have access to inside information on possible securities fraud to come forward and provide it to the SEC. A whistleblower that is represented by an attorney can remain anonymous and even low ranking employees have provided some very useful information regarding securities fraud. The SEC Whistleblower Law also allows spouses or ex-spouses of employees working for corporations where securities fraud is taking place to become whistleblowers and receive cash rewards.

A concern that many potential whistleblowers have is that they will face retaliation from their employer if they provide information about alleged securities fraud. However, with the Dodd Frank Whistleblower Law, this isn’t really something to worry about. When you work with an attorney, you can remain anonymous until you receive a cash reward. Also, the law that was put in place to protect whistleblowers provides serious remedies should there be any form of retaliation against you. You may file a lawsuit against your employer if you’ve faced retaliation, allowing you to get double the amount of your back salary, plus your fees for legal representation as well as other costs. A company that has terminated an employee for whistleblowing is obligated to rehire that person.

Even is you’ve been directly involved in the securities fraud, you may still be eligible for a cash reward if you provide information to the SEC, as long as you haven’t been convicted of any criminal conduct related to the fraud. As a whistleblower, you can consult with an experienced attorney, and get information on the consequences of being involved in securities fraud, as well as receive representation before the SEC.
